The Min­istry of Pub­lic In­fras­truc­ture has an­nounced that the pedes­trian over­passes lo­cated at Prov­i­dence and Di­a­mond, on the East Bank of De­mer­ara, will be tem­po­rar­ily closed to al­low for works nec­es­sary be­fore the planned in­stal­la­tion of el­e­va­tors.

In a no­tice is­sued on Fri­day, the min­istry said the over­pass at Prov­i­dence would be closed from May 21st to May 23rd, while the over­pass at Di­a­mond would be closed from May 24th to May 26th.

“As a re­sult of these much needed prepara­tory works, pedes­tri­ans’ ac­cess to the over­passes will be re­stricted dur­ing the iden­ti­fied pe­ri­ods,” the no­tice ex­plained.

In or­der to en­sure the safety of pedes­tri­ans dur­ing the works, the min­istry said it has re­quested the as­sis­tance of the Guyana Po­lice Force (GPF) to help pedes­tri­ans to cross the road­way dur­ing the pe­ri­ods of dis­rup­tion. “Pedes­tri­ans are re­minded that this per­mis­sion to cross the East Bank Pub­lic Road­way is tem­po­rary and, upon com­ple­tion of works, the GPF will con­tinue its dili­gent en­force­ment ac­tiv­i­ties tar­get­ing er­rant pedes­tri­ans,” it noted.

Mean­while, the pub­lic was also ad­vised that there may be clo­sures of the in­ner car­riage­ways ad­ja­cent to the over­passes to per­mit the move­ment of equip­ment and ma­te­ri­als by the con­trac­tor, S Jag­mo­han Con­struc­tion Ser­vices.

The min­istry is urge­ing all road users to take nec­es­sary pre­cau­tions dur­ing on­go­ing works. The pedes­trian over­pass above the Di­a­mond Pub­lic Road
